Shock Doctor NEW Youth Baseball Protective Equipment - BATTER UP!

We hear statistics all the time about the staggering numbers of injuries sustained during youth sports. Earlier this month, The Youth Sports Safety Alliance presented a National Action Plan of ten items to Congress aimed at preventing injury and death on the youth athletic field. (http://www.youthsportssafetyalliance.org/docs/National-Action-Plan.pdf) Among them was a recommendation that parents should educate themselves in the potential benefits and risks of optional protective equipment. With baseball season kicking off, we wanted to make sure your readers were informed about Shock Doctor’s  latest baseball protective accessories for kids ages six and up.

In addition to the wrist guards, compression shorts and sleeves, elbow guards, padded sliding shorts, and flex cups, take note of the Velocity Shockskin Baseball Youth Sleeveless Shirt below with the chest pad, as it was on the biggest sellers last season.

According to NATA, approximately 116,000 children ages 5 to 14 are treated annually in hospital emergency rooms for baseball-related injuries (Children’s Hospital), High school athletes suffer 2 million injuries, 200,000 doctor visits and 30,000 hospitalizations every year.

MYOWNLITTLESTORY.COM OFFERS ONLY ONLINE BABY BOOK WITH FREE E-MAIL REMINDERS SPECIFIC TO BABY’S MILESTONES





Custom Options Are Perfect For Traditional and Non-Traditional Families With Unique Stories 

Create Free Online, Print Anytime

Baby’s first smile… First blow of a kiss… Favorite toys, songs and foods… every new parents fears forgetting these endearing details. MyOwnLittleStory.com (MyOwnLittleStory), the only online baby book with email reminders specific to the baby's stages and current milestones, was created to help parents remember and record the details of their child's life while the memories are still fresh.  The company’s exclusive Milestone Memory System is a free service that tracks the child’s age and reminds the parent, via email, to record the special stories of their baby’s life.


In a world where taking photos of your baby is easy and instant, Kristin Coons, founder of MyOwnLittleStory, was inspired to create and launch the site in 2011 to get rid of “baby book guilt” for those parents who feel embarrassed about not having the time to create a baby book, but also to encourage new parents to write the story that compliments the photos.

“Parents are busy in the day to day life of raising kids and they are certain they will remember the stories later,” says Kristin Coons. “Unfortunately, I learned the hard way, with my oldest child, that those little details can be hard to remember even just a couple of years later.  I wanted to help parents journal their personal stories in an easy to use format where they could write as little or as much as they wanted.”

HOW IT WORKS: The four-step process makes online baby booking as simple as responding to an email.

·         Register – With registration, MyOwnLittleStory is free to users for up to two years.   After two years, users are asked to print their storybook, purchase a CD or pay a nominal storage fee: $15 for 6-months and $24 for a year.  Those who are "viewing" stories or "shopping" will continue to have free accounts to view stories or shop.

·         Remind – Baby’s birth date is recorded during registration allowing MyOwnLittleStory to send an email twice a month with a brief narrative of their baby’s current milestone to prompt them to write down details.

·         Record – Each reminder e-mail has a link to directly to the baby's current milestone.  Click the link and start recording the stories to treasure for a lifetime.  Also, easily upload 1-4 photos to accompany the story on that page. Or, click the snooze button and get another reminder in a week.

·         Reminisce – MyOwnLittleStory offers a professionally printed book that is bound in a linen embossed hardcover made exclusively for its members (8.5” high x11” wide; front cover has a 4" x 3" window to display an image), which they suggest be printed on each birthday to mark the year.  Starting at $38.99 (28 pages), pricing is based on the number of pages in your story: $48.99 (40 Pages); $58.99 (52 pages), $68.99 (64 pages), $78.99 (72 pages).  Stories are also available on CD for $30.

WHAT MAKES MYOWNLITTLESTORY.COM UNIQUE:     
·         Whether the family and birth story is traditional or not, MyOwnLittleStory offers the ability to customize pages or skip a question, allowing parents to include only the information that is representative of their child and family situation in the book.   

·         The Milestone Memory Service emails make it easy for busy parents to record the details of their baby's life from home, office or iPhone and also allows parents to share their child’s latest milestone with family and friends.  Click the link, answer a few questions a couple of times a month and over the course of a year, the child’s story is captured and the book is done.  

·         If parents are too busy or if baby hasn't quite reached a particular milestone, parents can click the snooze button to be reminded again in a week.  The site even offers suggestions to help parents who might encounter some "writer's block" when jotting down a story (see samples below). Topics include, but are not limited to:
o   Pregnancy: All about your mom and dad, first trimester, second trimester, baby shower, third trimester, preparation
o   Year One:  Baby’s arrival, first smile, first laugh, favorite foods, favorite games, rolling, sitting, crawling, walking, first words
o   Year Two: Talking, toddling, eating, dancing, singing, imitating, dress up, art work
·         MyOwnLittleStory also offers gift certificates that come packaged in a keepsake envelope with free items including stationery and labeled vellum envelopes for storing all of those special mementos, such as a lock of hair, the hospital bracelet and more .

·         To put the finishing touch on every page, MyOwnLittleStory.com features watercolor illustrations from Los Angeles-based artist, Devon Galusha, who created the original images exclusively for MyOwnLittleStory.   The covers are available in Pink, Blue and Green with the idea that simplicity is the best approach to creating a keepsake that will last a lifetime.


ABOUT MYOWNLITTLESTORY.COM: MyOwnLittleStory.com (MyOwnLittleStory), the only online baby book with automated email reminders specific to a baby's stages and current milestones, offers parents the ability to customize and detail their personal story about their baby’s firsts, funniest, cutest and best moments. The exclusive MyOwnLittleStory Milestone Memory System is a free service that tracks the child’s age and reminds the parent, via email, to record the special stories of the child’s life.

MyOwnLIttleStory.com was created by Kristin Coons, mother of three young boys.  After her third son was born in 2006, she came up with the idea for MyOwnLittleStory from her own desire to write down the details of her kids’ lives while they were still little and it was still fresh in her mind.  Kristin spent a couple of years fine-tuning her vision and three years working with a programmer to create the site. MyOwnLittleStory launched in 2011.  The site currently has about 10,000 users and is growing daily. Kristin is also the author of a blog: TheInspiredMom.com which features the stories of other moms who are following their dreams as well as inspiration from what she has learned on her journey of following her own dreams.
